Part 3 - Intentional Living in an Ambiguous World

Jan 21, 2018

MATTHEW 5:13-16 MSG - Let me tell you why you are here. You’re here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the GOD-flavors of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness? You’ve lost your usefulness and will end up in the garbage.

Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the GOD-colors in the world. GOD is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with GOD, this generous Father in heaven.

BE Intentional in How You Live

A changed life (thoughts, opinions, actions) is the overflow of a committed relationship with Jesus

How can I truly be a positive influence to people?

Develop dedications that intentionally separate you from an uncommitted lifestyle

Your dedications demonstrate your intentionality

Our world celebrates ambiguity

Living Intentionally realizes “My faith is an eternal destination that must be shared
